I went to a website called The Wayback Machine which is an archive for old websites. I used to own a site where I posted things I had written wayback when. I will share many of the stories and poems here.
To Your Eyes
Karen Vertigan Pope
For A Long Forgotten Old Boyfriend… written on Wednesday Morning 2.10.99
Penned on an envelope while musing and found after three years while cleaning out an old filing cabinet which was stuffed with trash worthy papers.
Your eyes are things that capture and hold
And pull me closer to where you are
Dark and lovelier still, they call out
With an owl flight voice of such sweetness
That bearing it is a bright burden
What secrets do you conceal in the depths?
Oh, beautiful eyes that you are. I behold life in your eyes
A flower: Yes, opening, glittering with dawn’s dew
A melody: Yes, touching the soul as only beauty can
Sensual curves of creativity
Speak to me in a new language
Show to me an abstract landscape
Sings in a voice of such purity
That rising, it brings me nearer to
Heaven than ever I have approached before
And seeing them for the first time I did not know eyes could be so brown
Nobody, not even the song of the lark, has such soft eyes…
O, beautiful eyes that you are!
